If you think that's the biggest difference between the two incidents I would have to strongly disagree. Although both were absolutely terrifying Pronger only loss consciousness for 30 seconds. You act like playing the following game is a sign of masculinity or something. You and I both know if that happened today he'd be done for the rest of the playoffs. Health and safety drastically changed from the 1990's to today. Hamlin loss his pulse on 3 separate occasions, with the addition of not being able to breathe on his own. So while both extremely dangerous I'd say the severity's were extremely different. Not counting his brain was without oxygen for probably longer than 4 min (which is the time at which your brain starts to die) I think some empathy in your life will do you wonders and if not we live in a free country so you can stop watching the NFL all together. God knows if I was a lions fan I would have done that years ago....JK I'm a bills fan so I'm not doing much better in that department.
Quoted from boscokid:
I'm about sick of the NFL, the Bills, and this dude milking this shit.
Obviously it was a scary major incident but you know what? It was also scary when it happened to Chris Pronger and he played a fkn hockey game two days later. The biggest difference is it happened to one on a nationally televised game of the most popular sport in the country and the other during a hockey game probably only watched by a folks in St Louis, Detroit and Canada. Whenever the NFL pushes a narrative the only actual item on their agenda is money.
